The Cacique is still looking for a center forward to replace the departure of Juan Martín Lucero, who was a goalscorer for the albos.
In Colo-Colo keep working to find last reinforcements to complete the squad for the new season. In this sense, a search that has not ceased in Macul is that of the center forward to replace the position left by Juan Martin Lucero.
Under this line, a name that has gained strength in recent days as a possible replacement for “Gato” in the squad of Gustavo Quinteros It’s of Michael Merentielcurrent attacker of palmeiras and who supposedly had taken advantage of the candidates that the Colocolino leadership was considering.
However, in a complete reversal of the situation, the future of the 26-year-old Uruguayan striker now indicates that he is nowhere near the grass of the Monumental Stadium. So at least he made it known Marcelo Tejera, striker representativewho in dialogue with Al Aire Libre de Cooperativa referred to the Cacique’s alleged interest in the player, where he did not know of contacts with the albos.
“I know that a lot has come out in the press, but I don’t have any offer from Colo-Colo“, said in the first instance the gunner’s agent trained in Peñarol. “Miguel is a Palmeiras player. When an offer arrives, it will be presented to Palmeiras, and for now there are none”he added.
Notably Merentiel came to Verdao in the middle of 2022 after an outstanding passage through Defense and Justice of Argentina. However, in the Brazilian cast he did not achieve a leading role, playing only 236 minutes in ten games (one for Copa Libertadores), in which he scored two goals.
